U.S. and Canadian residents have been enjoying the ease of buying bitcoin through their bank account thanks to the partnership of the Airbitz and Glidera. We recently announced that we were looking for beta testers in the Eurozone for a new feature. Now, residents in the 19 Eurozone countries can enjoy the same buy and sell services as their North American counterparts through our app.
We expanded our in-app buy/sell feature to Europe by partnering with the Dutch exchange CleverCoin. The feature is available in 19 countries including Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Spain. Right now, the feature is buy only with very high limits. A sell feature is slated for release shortly.
CEO and co-founder of Airbitz Paul Puey said of the partnership, “We’re excited about our expansion to Europe and happy to do it with our awesome partners CleverCoin. We aim to build a global brand enabling people to easily buy, sell, secure, send, and receive Bitcoin and this launch is a key piece of that goal. We look forward to expanding this service in 2016 and doing so while retaining our core beliefs in never holding custody of users’ data, keys, or funds.”
Our mobile app is known for its privacy and edge security platform. It’s popular among Bitcoiners who value financial autonomy and features like purchasing discounted gift cards for Starbucks and Target. Our team hopes this will broaden services to people in the UK who want quick and easy bitcoin transfers and we plan on expanding to other regions in the coming months. If you’re in the Eurozone, try it out today and see what you think.
